Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Pelorus Brut Non Vintage
The grapes for this blend of chardonnay (60%) and pinot noir (40%) are grown on vines planted in free-draining, gravel-based soil. The grapes are pressed, not crushed, and the juice is given only a short time to settle before 80% is fermented in stainless-steel tanks and 20% in old French oak barrels. The wine is matured in bottle for two years to add layers of complexity.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
